COVID-19 UPDATES

Due to concerns about the novel coronavirus and related disease (COVID-19), Valley Animal Center is taking additional precautionary measures within the facility.

This is being done to keep our staff, doctors, volunteers, animals, clients, and visitors safe while continuing to provide essential patient care. It is important to note that there have been no reported cases of COVID-19 within the Valley Animal Center facility at this time.

Effective July 14, 2020:

Following California’s new statewide and county closures, our administration office will remain closed until further notice. Please note that all of our services are available by appointment only.

While our administration staff will continue to monitor all incoming phone calls and emails, we do advise that you email the appropriate department to schedule your appointment.

By closing our administration office, we believe we are doing our part to help Fresno County fight COVID-19.

We thank you for your patience!
